Default Bought a new toy

Wanted something to plow the drive, and maybe hit up the dunes now that my employer won't pay for Vaca time I dont use.

I like it. Nice machine. I wanted one for my driveway but ended up getting the snowblower model instead.

I had 1200 hours of sick leave. They changed the rules on cash out on retirement.
I retired with three hours on the books.

Cool, i need one too...
What kind of blade is that? Aluminum? I wonder how the wings will hold up in heavy wet snow? Can you remove them easily?
My drive is far too long and large to plow with a quad, but it would work great for all there little stuff around me.

Switch your winch to rope(go 3/8" x 6 ft as an add on to normal) before you plow or plan on driving it in reverse back to the garage to fish broken wire out of the winch. I've broken the rope twice as well but I broke steel 5 times the first winter in Petoskey. I also added one of those rubber stoppers that keeps me from sucking the hook into the fairlead. I "had" to have a canam 800R to plow with Kids like riding around as well.
